Blumira: XDR Strategies [SIEM-Driven vs. Traditional EDR]

An analysis of SIEM driven XDR vs. traditional EDR

As cyberthreats continue to evolve, organizations are increasingly exploring Extended Detection and Response (XDR) to fortify their cybersecurity stance. Unlike Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR), which primarily focuses on endpoint protection, XDR collects and analyzes data across a wider range of sources such as endpoints, networks, cloud infrastructure, and applications.

While traditional EDR solutions offer valuable protection, particularly with granular endpoint visibility, they also come with their set of challenges—like the need for additional security tool integration and a high volume of alerts requiring manual triage.

One intriguing avenue organizations are exploring is SIEM-driven XDR, which integrates Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) as a foundational layer. In this webcast, you will learn some key advantages of this approach:

·         Comprehensive Data Collection: Centralized aggregation of data from multiple sources enables a more holistic view of the security landscape.

·         Advanced Threat Correlation: to help SIEM connect seemingly isolated events, allowing for more effective detection

·         Integrated Workflows for Rapid Response: to reduce the time between detection and remediation.

Join this informative discussion and learn how to choose the right XDR strategy for your organization.
